THE ACADEMIC PROCESSION AND REGALIA 

The academic procession is one of the oldest traditions of colleges throughout 
the world. In medieval times the ordinary dress of the university scholar, whether 
student or teacher, was the dress of the cleric. He wore a long gown, and often in 
cold weather he wore a cloak with a hood which could be pulled up over the head 
for cover and protection. 

Although fashions have changed since the 16th century, the scholars of the post- 
medieval period retained the academic attire. Eventually the attire was prescribed 
by university statutes to distinguish the different faculties and degrees-of-learning. 
The bachelor, master, and doctor gowns differ stylistically in cut and decorative 
motif. 

The colorful hoods, which indicate fields of learning and the institutions con- 
ferring the degree, were originally worn over the head, but during the 16th century, 
caps were adopted and the hood was draped over the shoulder. 

A long tassel is attached to the middle point of the top of the cap, to drape over 
the left edge of the mortar board. The tassel may be black, gold, or the color appro- 
priate to the academic field of the wearer. 

An Intercollegiate Code has been adopted to represent the different departments 
of learning and has set the standards for academic dress in the United States. The 
hoods are lined with the official colors of the college from which the wearer receiv- 
ed his highest degree, while the collar of the hood denotes the academic subject 
area in which the wearer majored. These colors are assigned according to the 
following scheme:

'AMERICA, THE BEAUTIFUL" 
Katherine Lee Bates, Samuel A. Ward 

beautiful for spacious skies, 
For amber waves of grain, 
For purple mountain majesties 
Above the fruited plain. 

Chorus 



America! America! 

God shed His grace on thee, 

And crown thy good with brotherhood 

From sea to shining sea. 

beautiful for patriot dream 
That sees beyond the years, 
Thine alabaster cities gleam 
Undimmed by human tears. 

Chorus 



A m erica ! Am erica ! 

God shed His grace on thee, 

And crown thy good with brotherhood 

From sea to shining sea.
